Vocano Train I (Tren de los Vocanes I) - Ecuador

Central Andes - (Day Trip)

Volcano Train I (Tren de los Volcanes I)
Quito - El Boliche - Machachi - Quito

The adventure begins in Chimbacalle station, from where we depart southwards to the "Avenue of the Volcanoes". 

Pichincha, Atacazo, Pasochoa, the Viudita, Rumiñahui volcanoes, among others flank the railway.   The road descends through the "jungles of Panzaleo" whence wood for building the churches of Quito came from, through grasslands, croplands and haciendas. 

In Tambillo and Machachi we’ll enjoy the cuisine and culture of the chagras, the Ecuadorian cowboys.  In El Boliche, at the foothills of Cotopaxi, we discover its singular flora and fauna in an easy trek, then return to Machachi for lunch and a visit to "Granja La Estación", a beautifully kept farm home of native and exotic animals.
